Item Description...
The light began to move toward Gideon. Racing, faster and faster, it silently brightened until it filled his whole world. As it neared, he leaned forward and looked into the light to see the power, the immeasurable power, coming to reside in him, coming to be his alone. "It is just as the voice promised," he thought. "Just as Abaddon said!" But as the light came, it changed. What was a distant star took the shape of a flaming sword, emblazoned with pure fire that burned hotter than even the world cold bear. And there was something else-Gideon could see more than just the sword. Someone was holding it. Someone more brilliant than the sun-and more terrible. Someone who was coming.

In the style of the classic fantasy epics. Warden creates a mystical realm where an ordinary man must confront his fears to comprehend his extraordinary fate.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Exciting, entertaining, thought provoking.  Feb 26, 2007
Warning: You may find it hard to get other things done while reading this book. I know I did! Like another reviewer stated, I "burned the midnight oil" reading this one.
It was a great adventure. (I can hardly wait for the sequel!)

I bought this book in a Christian bookstore and was curious. I noticed the author is a minister and I liked what I read on the back of the book. As I read Gideon Dawning, I saw the parallel between Christianity and this story. I liked how Michael Warden used mythology to make a point; for instance, the importance of how we use words. That was so awesome.

I was first introduced to fantasy fiction by a friend about a year and a half ago - that book was Elantris, by Brandon Sanderson, also excellent and hard to set down.

This is my first review, so please forgive me if it's not the best. I enjoyed the book so much I just wanted to let others know. It is definitely worth reading. My daughter, a junior in high school, is reading it now and I just hope it doesn't interfere with her school work - because it IS hard to set aside.
A World Apart  Nov 17, 2006
=Spoiler Warning!=
What a great story! A Geology teacher gets swallowed in an earthquake and winds up in a world at war, you guessed it, he is "the one", the only being capable of stopping the war. Of course he is a reluctant hero, and wants nothing but to leave and keep his dark secrets hidden.
==He wsa sxelaluy aesbud by hsi fehatr as a clhid==

Interesting twist on magic, using instead "The Words" which are basically incantations or spells. He could have just called it magic, but whatever... Perhaps it can serve as a lesson to show people that what they say can either be damaging or healing.

Some have cursed this book as [...] on the Thomas Covenant series, but I never read them, so I can only review this by what I know. ;)

However, being an Isaac Asimov fan, I HAVE to wonder if Warden stole some names from I Robot. See, IR has these two famous characters called Donovan and Powell, not very common names. Well quite quickly, GD introduces guys by the same names. Coincidence? How many OTHER books have two characters named DOnovan and Powell??? Hmmmm...

Can't complain, pretty good fantasy book. Unique, with interesting, though somewhat 2D characters. Use of Words gives the battle scenes great originality. Give it a try.
An annoyingly promising story  Jan 25, 2006
Mr. Warden has come up with an incredible fantasy world and interesting characters. Two "must-haves" for good fantasy. However, it was torture reading the book. First of all, it seems there was no editor. Major grammatical errors, made-up words (like "it became noticeably MOISTER"!!!) and repetitive phrases (how many times can you tell us a character moved with grace? And that another character "if it was possible" moved with more grace????) dominated the book. Again, it was a good story, but I tortured myself getting through the book, skipping whole useless pages at times, only to get to the end to discover the story only just begun. How frustrating! I won't be reading the sequel, not because I don't want to know what happens, but because I can't stand the thought of going through that kind of grammatical pain again.
This book is a must read!!  Aug 11, 2005
Before Gideon's Dawn, I can't remember the last time I read a fantasy fiction novel. In fact, this was the first one in many, many years. My wife was the first to read it, she being one who would typically not choose this genre. For the next few days, I watched her burn the midnight oil until the book was "consumed". She then persuaded me it was a must read... now! Taking her advice, I started the book and it had the same effect on me. I simply couldn't put it down. The story was so captivating, totally engaging and quite appealing to the imagination. I loved the experience not too mention the deep symbolism throughout. I am eager for the sequel to emerge. Way to go Michael Warden!
Unparalleled blend of entertainment and inspiration  Jul 23, 2005
Wow! Gideon's Dawn leaves no doubt of Michael Warden's storytelling genius! Imaginative and beautifully crafted. Heart-pounding action, rich character development, and a riveting plot are woven together into an enthralling story guaranteed to capture your attention from start to finish. Much more than simple entertainment, the author uses myth to explore deep truths about life and humanity that will no doubt strike a chord in the hearts of many readers. A highly recommended read, and I add my voice to the others clamoring for the second book in the trilogy.
